Running a command line tool, recimg.exe, to configure a custom recovery image for Windows to use when you refresh your computer, an error code 0x80070001 appears in the middle of creating a snapshot.
When running recimg.exe with Faronics Core Agent or Deep Freeze with ThawSpaces enabled, the following error occurs:
T:\>recimg /createimage t:\custom_image
Source OS location: C:
Recovery image path: t:\custom_image\CustomRefresh.wim
Creating recovery image. Press [ESC] to cancel.
The recovery image cannot be written.
Error Code - 0x80070001
When ThawSpaces or Faronics Core Agent is installed, Windows tries to back up the actual ThawSpace DSK file but it is locked by Deep Freeze.
Resolution / Workaround
Recimg.exe is not compatible with Faronics Core Agent or ThawSpaces. Two workarounds exist for this:
- Use an imaging tool that backs up the image while the system is not online, using either a PXE boot or USB/CD boot disk.
- Do not install Deep Freeze / Faronics Core Agent as part of the image, but install it as part of a post-imaging task.
